  • Just In Time For 2021, Here's An Even Better Way To Toast The New Year

    As the global dumpster-fire known as 2020 shambles to an end, you may feel like toasting 2021 with a glass of champagne. But according to Business Insider, there's a better glass to use than the classic champagne flute. In a flute, the bubbles should rise from the bottom. The problem is, the bubbles will move so quickly that you'll miss the flavors and aroma. If you use the flatter, wider champagne coupe, the flavors and scent that arise with the bursting bubbles will just float away, too. Your best bet? Use a brandy glass! Its wide bottom will slow the rate of bubbles, but the narrow top will trap the aroma and flavors. Cheers!

  • Pope Francis Will Not Lead Vatican's New Year's Celebrations

    According to CNN, Pope Francis will not lead the Vatican's New Year's Eve and New Year's Day celebrations, because of sciatic pain. This is the first time the Pope has missed a New Year's Eve celebration, but it is not the first event he skipped. On February 27, 84 year-old Pope Francis, canceled a scheduled mass, due to what The Vatican press office called a "slight imposition," denying rumors that he had Covid. Pope Francis first shared that he had sciatica (herniation of spinal disk) during an inflight press conference during a 2013 trip to Brazil. He said, "Sciatica is very painful, very painful! I don't wish it on anyone!" The Pontiff has received treatments like massages and injections to help reduce his pain. The Pope will be replaced by Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re, Dean of the College of Cardinals, for Thursday's New Year's Eve service. Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin will host Mass on Friday. Pope Francis will still lead the Angelus prayer on New Year's Day.
